In order to ensure that children at Pheasey Park Farm School and Early Years Centre have the best learning opportunities in art and design, we implement a curriculum that is sequenced so that the children learn about art and design, materials and methods according to their developmental needs. (See appendix one)
There is a balance between art and design. Two and Three dimensional work is carried out on a variety of scales. The use of Digital Learning is developed. The children will look at art from different cultures and eras. They also evaluate their own work and that of others.
Art, craft and design embodies some of the highest forms of human creativity and develops children’s cultural capital. A high-quality art and design education engages, inspires and challenges children, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. The children learn how to problem solve and become resilient learners. As children progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
